Written by request from Brenda Bianco for a  dance to Chinese music  for the

Matilda Chinese New Year Picnic 2008.  It is to be a surprise for the ladies

at the picnic. This was the closest I had to Chinese music  so hope it is suitable. 

 

I kept the dance simple and hope it does the trick for you Brenda.

                      See you on the floor sometime...Jan
